No, this isn’t about the tv show. Don’t I wish! Nope, this is about taming the office monster. Soon after we found out we were pregnant, we decided that Bones would move his business/office to our home to reduce costs. I don’t remember mentioning it, but my office was the project that I worked on while I was pregnant with Lil Bit. That was about 2 years ago. I’ve finally nearly finished and I’m closer than I’ve ever been.
Not only did I have a huge table full of stuff that I moved from the second desk so that Bones had a place to work, but I also had moved Lil’ Bit’s table in there so she could hang out while we worked. I don’t think that will be an option after Bones moves some office furniture in here and is working on customer equipment.
My to-do list included:
- scanning (10+ hours at my ScanSnap, while cleaning)
- shredding — 7 grocery bags full
- putting away (i.e. anything that was not office-related went to the TV room to be dealt with later)
- throwing out
- breaking down boxes
- reorganize closet
- gather like items (i.e. coupons :D)
This was the other major messy spot and most of this just got moved to the former TV room as well.
But now it is ready (minus my desk — where all that remains to be done, sorted, or put away is now residing) for all of Bones’ work furniture and items to be moved in. I even vacuumed all the paper shreds from the floor and hallway!
I realize it’s not the same place I took a picture of but it’s more representative of what our office actually looks like. Otherwise, it would be a pic of an empty corner :).
I also started cleaning the former TV room since the yard sale. I’m not sure if I have any before pics; I started cleaning before I thought about it and I was on a roll. Maybe that will be done soon enough that I can start hosting play dates :).
So this is what I’ve been working on for the last week. What about you? What have you tackled this week?
